    Bioware and EA have announced Omega, new DLC for Mass Effect 3 which will have you team up with ousted Omega ruler Aria T'loak to retake the station from Cerberus control:

    Soldiers of the Milky Way,

    Disturbing reports from the Citadel suggest that something big is about to go down. If our Intel is accurate, Aria is on the move. This was anticipated, as we did not expect her to sit idly by while Cerberus ran roughshod over Omega. With her biotic capabilities and well-documented mean streak, what happens next won’t be pretty.

    Our informants believe that Aria intends to seek out Commander Shepard for assistance. We are aware of the Commander’s ties to Aria, but are unclear about how deep they run. What we do know is that Aria will be relentless in her fight to take back Omega, and with the Commander at her side, she may very well be unstoppable.

    We will be observing this situation closely as it develops. Continue to monitor this channel for further communication.

    The war for Omega begins—How far will you go to end it?

    Mass Effect 3: Omega (Single-player DLC) – Coming November 27th to PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 (November 28th to PS3 in Europe).

    $14.99, 1200 MS/BW Points

    Eurogamer has some additional info:

    Omega will be "double the size" of the largest Mass Effect 3 DLC so far, Mass Effect 3 producer Mike Gamble explained at New York Comic-Con. (In terms of actual game content Gamble is likely referring to this summer's Leviathan DLC. In terms of file size the largest is the 2GB Extended Cut, although that is the Xbox 360 DLC file limit).

    Omega will also be the most expensive Mass Effect 3 DLC so far (or of the entire series, if you don't count Mass Effect 2's 1200 Point Cerberus Network pass which came free with new copies).​

    The most expensive? But does it make Aria T'loak romanceable?

    I just had a milky way bar with my lunch, and this honestly sounds more interesting.

    "Soldiers of the Milky Way®,

    Disturbing reports from our manufacturers suggest that we are running out of chocolatey goodness for our Milky Way® candy bar. If our intel is correct, the chocolate thief ChocoBoy has run off with our latest shipment from Chocoworld™. We believe he holds the chocolate hostage on planet X-Box® World.

    This shipment is vital to our operation. With ChocoBoy's biotic capabilities and well-documented mean streak, what happens next won't be pretty.

    Are you a bad enough dude to save the chocolate and return it to Milky Way® Corp?

    The war for chocolate begins—How far will you go to end it?

    Mass Effect 3: Choc'ing Xtremes (Single-player DLC) – Coming November 27th this year to PS3 and Xbox 360 exclusively (November 28th, 2018 to PS3 in Europe)."

    The real question is will Aria not be romancable. The probability of which while non-zero, is very, very small.

    I can already see this romance, she the mighty Aria breaking down in your arms, crying how her daddy didnt love her and her life of violence is compensating for lack of toys during her childhood.

    :lol:

    $14.99 for 6 hours 'gameplay' (aka 3 hours of cutscenes + dialogue and 3 hours of crouching behind short plastic looking walls)? Why the fuck would someone do that, especially when they have already finished this turd, when they could spend the same amount of money and buy Legend of Grimrock, with around 30 hours of gameplay, more replayability, a powerful editor, and the potential for unlimited DLCs (aka modules)??

    Humanity is stupid.

    Aria won't be romanceable per se, as in this DLC You play as her. The question is: will someone be romanceable for Aria? How about her female Turian party member? :M

    I'm going to buy this exactly as I have bought all previous ME DLC, i.e. not at all.

    I actually paid full price for DA2. Last Bioturd game I will ever buy.

    I might buy the 'Ultimate' edition when it's $5.99 on Steam or Origin or PB.

    Or you could spend your money on better things oldmanpaco. After DA:O and Call of Mass Effect Duty, BioWare are nothing worth playing or spending money on.

    To be complete honest (as the #1 Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 FANBOI) it's not even worth it (Except the ending of ME3 was EXCELLENT). That's about it. Seriously, think of one single classic cRPG you have not yer played. THAT would be a better experience and a better time well spent.

    I don't like the "unread messages in thread" icon so I keep opening it from time to time.
